  Amazon Review, Great Feeder! July 06, 2013
Reviewer: Coshoctonian

This is not our first Perky Pet upside down finch feeder (our others have worn out), but it is our first Deluxe model. We find that it seems heavier and more durable than the standard one. The plastic tube seems thicker. The perches and the bottom piece fit snuggly and won't fall out. The American Gold Finch is the only finch that comes to feed on this feeder...other finches and other birds try, but can't seem to hold on when they turn upside down, like the goldfinches do! Some people have commented that other birds have used their feeder, but we suggest that those birds may be the females who aren't as bright yellow as the males or perhaps the young ones who haven't gotten all their coloring yet. Also, in the winter, these birds are not brightly colored, but rather dull - almost a brown color. So, rest assured that when you see a bird feeding upside down on this feeder, you most likely are feeding an American Gold Finch! This summer they seem to come at all times during the day, and in the morning and the evening there are several around waiting to get onto a perch! Be prepared with plenty of thistle seed...the feeder holds about 2 1/2 pounds, and they can empty it in just under a week's time at our house! We just love to watch them!

  Amazon Review, Love My May 01, 2013
Reviewer: ElementaryComputers

I call this my "Flip-It Feeder." The gold finch, flip upside-down to eat the thistle seed because the hole is below the post. It's great fun to watch them eat (and in the winter some of the other birds try without success to flip and eat). I live in Ohio and I'd received one of these feeders as a gift, years ago. My old feeder recently fell in a windstorm and broke, so I purchased a new feeder exactly like my old one. The feeder has a metal lid so that the squirrels won't eat through it. I recommend this Upside Down Thistle Feeder for year round backyard bird watching.
